Ghanaian Actor cum Comedian, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, popularly known as Funny Face today told the Ofaakor Circuit Court presided by His Lordship Ebenezer Osei Darko he is having some mental challenges after receiving some slaps from the Kasoa Policemen.
He made this comment after the judged noticed some incoherence in Funny Face’s account of events thus asked the actor if he was sound of mind.
Last Monday, the comedic act was arrested by the police in Kasoa for unlawfully discharging a firearm at a drinking pub.
The Central Regional Police PRO, DSP Irene Serwaa Oppong said someone had reported Funny Face for causing a disturbance in a bar.
She stated that their investigations reveal the actor, born Benson Oduro Boateng, had gone to the bar where a misunderstanding ensued between him and the owner.
Although the two were separated, Funny Face went home, returned with a gun and fired warning shots.
Funny Face first pleaded guilty to unlawfully discharging a firearm in a public place.
The Judge then ordered Ghana Police to send Funny Face to Accra Psychiatric Hospital explaining that he does not sound normal.
The judge said Funny Face may be having a mental crisis and possibly going through depression.
He also ruled that Funny Face should be allowed to drive for the next two weeks.
